Etel Adnan

The diminutive scale of the abstract paintings of Etel Adnan (b. 1925, Beirut), establish an intimate engagement with the work, their forms and colours constituting what Adnan considers to be 'inner landscapes' that draw upon memories of real landscapes. This fascination with landscape is also evident in Adnan's texts, poetry and calligraphy being at the heart of her work, as in the case of her leporelli, which combine handwriting, painting and design. For the polyglot artist, painting is related to language.
